Trespasser? Destiny: Rise of Iron Exotic sneaks out early in the wake of today’s update

It’s called Trespasser but this Destiny: Rise of Iron Exotic is supposed to be here.


Destiny updated earlier today in advance of next week’s release of Destiny: Rise of Iron.

The patch did all sorts of things (you should check out the latest Destiny weapon rebalance, for one; there’s a nasty surprise in there for King’s Fall Hard Mode this week) but one of the little changes it made wasn’t documented: one of the Exotics coming with Rise of Iron has slipped out early.

The weapon in question is Trespasser, an Exotic sidearm. Sidearms have been generally under-utilised in Destiny’s combat sandbox, which is why Bungie buffed them in today’s patch – so it could be well worth a look.

Destiny developer Bungie has acknowledged the drops so it doesn’t look like an accident; I hope you’ve got some Three of Coins to burn.

Destiny: Rise of Iron is only coming to PS4 and Xbox One, which is why PS3 and Xbox 360 didn’t get today’s patch. You won’t find Trespasser in the last-gen versions.

The expansion delivers a raid, new strike, crucible maps, overhauled Cosmodrome, new destination, loads of weapons and armour sets, another social space, more story missions, an ornament system and much more.
